Two of the hottest actors on television have jumped into the future with the new dystopian feature film, Hotel Artemis.

It's Sterling K. Brown (This is Us) and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), as two brothers who are also high-level bank robbers, that kick off the movie when their latest job goes south. Both injured, they make their way to the title facility — a secret, members-only hospital for criminals, funded by the kingpin known as the Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum), in which they can get treatment for their wounds from the Nurse (Jodie Foster) and her faithful assistant (Dave Bautista).

When SYFY WIRE sat down with Brown and Henry at the press day for Hotel Artemis in Los Angeles (at a hotel a few miles west of downtown, where the movie is actually set), their chemistry as friends was instantly apparent — even as they joked about one of them getting paid more than the other.

They also get into why Brown isn't as emotional as This is Us fans might imagine, what intrigued them about this movie and cast, and how Henry is a huge SYFY fan (!). He even rattles off some of his favorite shows right at the top of the video. 

Watch above or below, then go watch these BFFs in Hotel Artemis on June 8.
